In a bid to aid in the reduction of COVID-19 cases in schools, the Accra North chapter of the Rotary club has donated some Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Kotobabi Cluster of schools in Accra.
According to the President of the chapter, Michael Dzreh, the exercise falls in line with President Akufo-Addo’s directive for all and sundry to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols.
Speaking to Citi News after handing over the items to the management of the school, Mr. Dzreh noted that the club will continue the exercise in other schools.
“In October when the President said the second-year students can return to school, we were wondering because the pandemic is not yet over. We considered the tendency of contracting the virus was high if there aren’t enough PPE. We thought it wise to provide some of these items to schools that are deprived.”
“We provided eight hundred rotary branded reusable face masks, fifty packs of tissue papers, fifty gallons of liquid soap,” he said adding that “We have just begun after presenting some of the items at a school in La. We will mobilize resources to repeat the donation exercise at other schools to help the government kick out COVID 19”.
The Head Teacher for Kotobabi Basic School, Anastasia Abban lauded the move by the club to help fight the spread of the virus in schools.
“This is very timely, the children need a lot of soap to wash and clean and prevent the COVID-19 as we are all aware. We are very grateful to you and we hope it won’t end here; we look forward to seeing more of your good gesture.”
